    Hi, looking for some suggestions for best (fastest, most reliable [no bugs etc]) phones under about $150. I don't think I need to really spend more than that. For the last like 10 years I've been using a smart phone, all I ever needed were $100 phones and they are good enough. Before smart phones, I just used cheap cell phones and were good enough also.

    I will do my own research (I know this is gonna take like 10 hours still) but figured I'd also ask here.

    I'm looking for has

    -I don't care at all about the front facing camera quality.
    -no need for eye retina or fingerprint password

    -I need at least 8GB internal storage for mp3s (maybe more though because even though I have almost no apps [I just use youtube, chrome, GPS driving and maybe a few more basic apps], my current phone is I think 4 GB internal storage and can't update certain apps because no more storage!]).
    I want all the storage internally because I don't trust removable sd card. I mean I can Password the card and trust it but last time I tried that, the phone automatically transferred stuff like my contacts and system files to the card - so if card was removed/damaged, I dunno what would have happened. I'd rather just use all internal and no SD.

    -Must have removable battery so the phone is not garbage once the battery can't be recharged (there's prolly tutorials how to solder in a new battery but I cant' believe they even make phones with non removable batteries)

    -Size, I want decent at least 5" screen but not too damn oversized.

    - must be able to switch 3G or 4G or 4G LTE (I never owned anythign higher than 3G. 3G is fast enough for me, but sometimes if I'm googling something in a store on the fly or something, I might crank it up to 4G LTE to be faster - I prefer 3G because it's much less radiation risk. 4GLTE tower radiation is frying trees near them.
    Most phone you can toggle this though so not a problem but just pointing out that I need 3G mostly and maybe %2 will be using LTE.

    -dust and/or water resistant would be nice but I never had one and never needed it.

    Without doing any kind of search, I think your options will be extremely limited by the removable battery.

    You can check this out: 8 best cheap phones under $150 (2017)

    About half the list has removable batteries. In this list I would say consider the Zenfone. It's battery isn't removable, but it is the largest of the batteries on the list, which would in theory reduce the number of times you charge it, which in turn reduces the wear and tear on the battery.

    I would spring for the Moto G4 Play.
